MIA visitor Charis S. with "Shaman" (1990's) by Uriash Puqiqnak, Uqsuqtuuq (Gjoa Haven), stone, antler, ivory, hide, MIA Collection

Where are you from?

New Zealand

What brings you to MIA? Is this your first visit?

I am attracted to all kinds of art.  I also really like art by Native Americans.

Why is this your favourite piece in the collection?

It’s my favourite because it is really different and original. I love its smile with crooked teeth and its funny, mischevious grin.
